BURNS STATUE


Statue of Robert Burns in Dumfries in Scotland.

The famous Scottish poet Rabbie Burns accepted a job to help manage a slave plantation in the West Indies.

Should Burns' statue be removed?

(NB Nobody has actually suggested removing the statue. Aangirfan is opposed to the removal of any statues.)

"Burns had been nearly married to Jean but they had agreed to separate  - without knowing that Jean was pregnant with twins.

"Then Robert had fallen in love with 'Highland Mary' who died suddenly while waiting for him to come to her.

"Jean's father sought court proceedings to arrest him and so Robert needed to escape."

Robert Burns and Slavery 


Scotland.

Patrick Douglas was a friend of Burns with investments in an estate in Jamaica, an estate that used black slave labour.

Patrick Douglas's brother was the resident manager and had a vacancy on the staff of overseers.

Burns accepted the position.

Burns then published his poems to instant acclaim and decided to stay in Scotland.

What may save the Burns statue is that Burns was apparently bisexual, and a Freemason 



Can you spot Rabbit Burns, at the site of the Rabi Burns mausoleum?

Burns had a total of twelve children by four women, including nine by his wife Jean Armour. 

Seven of his children were illegitimate.

Burns wrote a poem for 'Andrew'.

Epistle to a Young Friend. May, 1786

Ye'll try the world soon my lad, 

And Andrew dear believe me, 

Ye’ll find mankind an unco squad, 

And muckle they may grieve ye.



Burns wrote: Address to a Haggis

Was haggis a metaphor for penis?



Burns wrote: My Harry Was A Gallant Gay


Rabbie Burns had his reputed homosexual relationship.


...
Burns wrote Auld Lang Syne.

Burns wrote: Whistle, And I'll Come To You, My Lad

There is said to be an underlying homosexual subtext in "Oh, Whistle."

O whistle, an' I'll come to ye, my lad,
Tho' father an' mother an' a' should gae mad,
O whistle, an' I'll come to ye, my lad.

But warily tent when ye come to court me,
And come nae unless the back-yett be a-jee;
Syne up the back-stile, and let naebody see,
And come as ye were na comin' to me,
And come as ye were na comin' to me.

O whistle an' I'll come, &c.


Statue of Burns in Dumfries, the Queen of the South.

At kirk, or at market, whene'er ye meet me,
Gang by me as tho' that ye car'd na a flie;
But steal me a blink o' your bonie black e'e,
Yet look as ye were na lookin' to me,
Yet look as ye were na lookin' to me. 

O whistle an' I'll come, &c.

Aye vow and protest that ye care na for me,
And whiles ye may lightly my beauty a-wee;
But court na anither, tho' jokin' ye be,
For fear that she wile your fancy frae me,
For fear that she wile your fancy frae me. 

O whistle an' I'll come, &c.

Burns was a Freemason.

  1. Robert Burns, National poet of Scotland. St. David's Lodge No. 174, Tarbolton.

    To give him his Masonic characteristics. Also connections with Lodge No 2 Canongate (same time as Erasmus Darwin) and Motherlodge, Kilwinning, Ayrshire.

    If you are a patriotic, haggis tossing Scot who just happens to hate BLM you may be aghast at the idea of any suggestions that Burns may be removed from his pedastle.

    The slave trade was a great way to see the world and earn some cash along the way (bit like a gap year) of its day.

    But why stop there? The Tobacco Lords made a 'killing' from selling powerful addictive drugs and have made trillions of dollars and killed hundreds of millions of poor people of ALL colours along the way.

    Edinburgh was built on slavery and Glasgow built on drugs (tobacco). Likewise Lord Palmerston made it government policy to use opium/heroin as a weapon to attack China and wreak havoc on an entire population. Fast forward to present day Afghanistan to see the industry in its current state.

    The damage that the Toxic Swamp known as Scotland has done to the world is truly staggering. Of course Freemasonry of The Scottish Rite is also another export of the Ginger Swamp.

    Before anyone labels me a racist, as a born and bred Leither, from the era of Irvine Welsh's Trainspotting (whom I worked for decades ago).

    I've grown to properly dislike my country of birth due to its legacy to the world.

    In terms of weight, Drugs, Slavery, Tobacco and Freemasonry cannot be outdone with a few good deeds, as it were.

    The question as to whether Burns or any Freemasons should remain idolised on a pedastle - the answer is no.

    The only truly sad part though, is no one had the balls to question this dichotomy sooner. BLM/Antifa or whatever rabble of tripe come along and get the credit for something we Scots should have done given the damage the aforementioned scumbags have done to us, our families and loved ones.

    Question, does anyone know of someone who has died of a smoking related disease?

    Unlike Covid the answer will be yes.

    Peace to the humans.

    1. But, there are many good Scots, just as there are many good Italians, good Jews, etc.

  2. In the Netherlands and France, Burka's and face covering masks are by law forbidden, but wearing Covidiot masks became mandatory in some cities. So if you combine the headscarf with the Covidiot mask you have exactly what the Islamists did previously.

  3. With quantum physics came the startling idea that observation or awareness mediates reality. Similarly, historical research reveals that without exception, the greatest figures of history have feet of clay - if they are real in the first place. However, knowledge of such flaws will have no effect on the identification and deification of heroes and saints - past and future.
